When my friend brought this over from my local specialty carry out, I at first cringed. France has never been seen as a beer country. This beer was a typical light tan lager color, a slight aroma of hops. A slight sweet taste.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Pours with a pale golden body topped by a medium thick white quickly disappearing head that leaves a good amount of lace behind. sour skunky aroma with a grassy hop background and a touch of malt. Slightly skunky and sour grassy flavor with a touch of malt. The finish is slightly bitter. Light bodied, dry and watery.

Mine was 5.2% Very pale and drinkable, not impressive. Probably the most famous French lager abroad.

Good stuff off tap. Good stuff for an average lager, easy to drink in large amounts.

JK (4920) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Light golden color. Head is very thin and is gone quickly. It is best on tap when allowed to warm a little. Not a bad lager.

above average generic lager. Bottled version is much better, and is less carbonated.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2003
Rocky head that quickly fades, pale golden colour. Nose is hoppy but rather bland. Flavour is slightly sweet with a mild hop finish. Reminds me of Paris where you could pick up a six pack for 5 bucks at the grocery store or 6 bucks a glass in the cafes. Go figure.

Ungstrup (30256) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2003
A golden beer with an OK head - but it disappears all too quickly. The aroma is nicely hoppy - but a little too faint. The flavor is fresh at first, then a bit maltsweet - but then it turns watery. It gets a little back from the nice bitterness.

The French Budweiser. Nuff said.

Nothing special here, move along. Had it when the other choices were Miller and Bud.
